Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

I like rooibos, and usually find it a strong woody sweet flavor. This one surprised me by being so meek and mild.

Although I am amused and happy I got to try a tea from Denmark, I won't be trying to get my hands on this one again.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Rating: 2/4 leaves


Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
